2010 Football Board – Week 6 Recap


Another week has passed and there’s still only a dozen bets on the board. Maybe there needs to be a grassroots movement on Twitter to get the guys to agree to some more board wagers. Let’s run down the board bets and see where they all stand.

  1. Who has more fantasy points: Clinton Portis or C.J. Spiller?
    Portis is at 33 pts and Spiller is at 21 pts. No change here as Portis was out with an injury and Spiller was on bye. I still like the guy who will be playing in games over the next month or two to win the bet.
    Projected winner: Spiller (Nate)
  2. Who has more fantasy points: Wes Welker or Mike Sims-Walker?
    Welker is at 43 pts and Sims-Walker is at 28 pts. It looks like Welker will still get some points with Moss gone but it may be a little tougher for him. Jacksonville is still a mess and MSW is the definition of inconsistent.
    Projected winner: Welker (Matthew)
  3. Who has more fantasy points: Fred Jackson or C.J. Spiller?
    Jackson is at 19 pts and Spiller is at 21 pts. Buffalo was on a bye in week 6 so there was no movement in this bet. Jackson is still the #1 guy so he’s got a better opportunity at picking up points.
    Projected winner: Jackson (Matthew)
  4. Who has more fantasy points: Donald Brown or Cadillac Williams?
    Brown is at 14 pts and Williams is at 26 pts. Brown is dealing with an injury so he didn’t pick up any points last week. Cadillac is looking pretty horrid and some other Tampa Bay RBs will probably start stealing some carries. Cadillac however still looks like he’ll get more playing time than Brown.
    Projected winner: Williams (Nate)
  5. Will Tom Brady throw at least 31 TDs?
    Brady currently has 10 TD passes and is on pace for 32 TDs. Brady doesn’t have the homerun threat any more but Branch is a solid target for him, so his opportunity for TD passes is still there.
    Projected winner: over 31 TDs (Nate)
  6. Will Joe Flacco throw for 4,000 yards?
    Flacco has thrown for 1,401yards and is on pace for 3,736. He had his highest yardage total against NE last week but he’ll need to stay away from the 150 yard games and have a couple huge games if he wants to go over 4,000 yards.
    Projected winner: Under 4,000 yards (Nate)
  7. Who has more fantasy points: LaDainian Tomlinson or Leon Washington?
    Tomlinson is at 85 pts and Washington is at 16 pts. This bet is over, unless there’s injuries to Lynch and Forsett in Seattle.
    Projected winner: Tomlinson (Matthew)
  8. Who has more receiving yards: Felix Jones (-50 yds) or Marion Barber?
    Jones has 66 yards (factoring in the handicap) and Barber has 21 yards receiving. Jones has huge in the pass game in week 6 and has gotten the majority of the touches in the Dallas offense the past couple of weeks.
    Projected winner: Jones (Matthew)
  9. Who has more fantasy points from week 2 on: Shonn Greene or Matt Forte (-10 pts)?
    Forte has 47 pts (factoring in the handicap) and Greene has 34 pts. Forte managed to find the end zone despite not picking up a lot of yardage.  He’s still the #1 guy in Chicago while Greene is still splitting reps with L.T.
    Projected winner: Forte (Nate)
  10. Who has more fantasy points from week 2 on: Kyle Orton or Vince Young?
    Orton has 96 pts and Young has 38 pts. Orton had one of his worst performances of the year and still managed to pick up 14 points in week 6.  Young went down with a knee injury and it could affect his status for week 7. Orton has built up too big of a lead for Young to really make up any substantial ground.
    Projected winner: Orton (Matthew)
  11. Who has more fantasy points from week 6 on: Dustin Keller or Vernon Davis?
    Keller has 7 pts and Davis has 9 pts. Both got banged up in week 6 but their injuries don’t appear to be too serious.  Even though Davis leads the bet, I still like Keller since he doesn’t have Alex Smith throwing to him.
    Projected winner: Keller (Matthew)

So after 6 weeks of play, the board is tied at 6 wins a piece. There wasn’t a whole lot of movement in the board this week and none of the projections changed.
